Detroit Pistons Season Preview

I have a feeling that this season will be better for the Pistons.

Could the Heat take the title this year? Probably.

Who cares!!! Pistons are a shell of what they used to be and even if they sniff the playoffs, they will be swept out by either the Heat, Celtics, or Magic. Basically only 4 teams in the NBA...the 3 teams in the East and the Lakers.

My interest in the NBA declines more every year. It's a league of players, not teams. I can't stand the ego-maniacs running the NBA and could never justify spending money going to a game right now. That bothers me quite a bit because basketball was my favorite sport to play growing up and I have so many fond memories of watching the Pistons especially the 2004 team.

As for the Pistons themselves, I have no idea what Joe Dumars is doing with this team. They might be a borderline playoff team in the Eastern Conference, but what good is getting swept by the Heat/Celtics/Magic? I would rather tear it down completely than linger in mediocrity because this team as currently constructed is a disaster. Should have traded Rip and Prince this summer. Still need a true point guard. Not too sure where McGrady fits with so much competition on the perimeter. Not to mention, the most glaring issue still has not been addressed. Monroe is a nice start, but that frontcourt is purely garbage. Plus Jerebko is out and all that means is more playing time for the stellar Jason Maxiell and Charlie Villanueva.

The league won't let the Finals be anything other than Heat/Lakers. I hope Kobe s***s all over LeBron when it happens.

Just as long as the Pistons return to some form of respectability.

This. I'm still sore over his ego-filled self promotional "decision" segment on ESPN.

Oh what a shock... The Pistons got murdered in the paint by the Nets. This will happen 81 more times this season and everyone but Joe Dumars will realize this team has needed a big man (or five) for years now.

Trade Rip please. Ben Gordon is way better.

This may sound like a poor fan, but I would rather the Pistons be really bad than mediocre. At least have a good shot in the lottery to rebuild because this collection of talent misfits is not leading to anything promising. I don't even want to make the playoffs as a lower seed. We need high-end talent in the draft.

And now Stuckey refuses to take to the court because he's in a rift with the coach.

0-5, this is going to get ugly.

Might as well tank and get that high draft pick just in case there is a lockout. We can't defend the paint, guard the perimeter, get back on transition, communicate and our coach looks like he hasn't learned anything from last season. Lots of jawing back and forth, coach calling the players out and the players calling the coach out. They obviously don't want to play for this idiot. We don't have a true point guard after trading Billups, Stuckey has failed as a project and is only effective at the 2, no center, and Q's rotations are a head scratcher. Sucks too because this team does have a lot of talent, just no chemistry or an attitude and no motivation to win. It's like they gave up already.

Apparently, Prince has had issues with fan criticism.

This team is so dreadful to watch. I can't even explain it. Somewhere a huge mess was made. I haven't watched the NBA in a couple years (Gowings nailed it), but still support/follow the Stones. I still think Joe D is better then most at his job, but wow this mess is going to take a while to clean up. I swear we have 15 guards, and 10 small forwards on the team.

Rip/Prince gotta go. I don't care if its a horrible deal for us. True rebuilding isn't going to happen without them gone. Only good thing about Prince is his expiring contract.

Monroe seems like years away, Daye doesn't impress me, McGrady isn't going to solve anything, Charlie V is horrible on defense, and even Stuckey I have questions about.

I hope they tank, and get a top 5 pick. I would be willing to trade any player on this team besides Ben Gordon, and Jerebko.
